The “Boarding Schools in Germany” program is geared towards highly motivated students between 10 and 17 years of age, offering the chance to participate in regular classes in German boarding schools. The goal is to finish a school career in Germany and to graduate with the Abitur (German secondary education leaving certificate), which at the same time is the entrance ticket for university admittance in Germany as well as a key to a successful career at home.
Finding the right school in Germany is an important matter for both students and parents. The Humboldt-Institut has a network of more than 40 renowned partner boarding schools all over Germany. Our experienced staff will guide you through the demanding process of deciding for the most suitable school before starting the German program at the Humboldt-Institut.
Our counseling team will be your partner for all steps, anything from application at the secondary school of your choice to the planning of the German course until school transition – this ensures an effective and successful counseling process!
CurriculumOur counseling aims at Gymnasium attendance. From this school form, students graduate with the Abitur (A-levels, university entrance qualification), i.e., students qualify for higher education in Germany with the Abitur certificate. The German school system aims at a diversified basic education, i.e., subject-based specialization does not start until higher education.

We are very grateful to the Humboldt-Institut for helping our children to manage the transition efficiently from an English-language based system to the German one. The children enjoyed the experience.
In Vietnam, my sons have studied a bilingual UK program. I never thought that one day both of them would join a school in Germany. But when I checked the Humboldt-Institut website and got in contact with the counseling team, all of my family members have changed their idea to join the German education system. My elder son was very happy during his Humboldt time. Now he is in Germany for almost 2 years and has become a “very real German boy”. I would like to say thanks to the help of teachers and counselors at the Humboldt-Institut. My younger son will join the German program this summer. I feel very satisfied with the support and flexibility of the Humboldt staff.
My two daughters both experienced wonderful learning periods in Humboldt‘s picturesque campuses and friendly boarding community. The small-class approach and the variety of nationality of students in a boarding house will bring a lot of fun and cultural exchanges to each student and thus releases the tense and pressure of the study. It is also worth to highlight that the meals in Humboldt‘s boarding schools are really good. I wish to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude to Humboldt‘s teachers and boarding school managers in Lindenberg and Bad Schussenried to give a memorable period to my daughters in their young learning period.
The counseling service we have received from Humboldt is truly exceptional. The constructive, flexible and student-oriented approach that Humboldt has taken to evaluate and admit a student is beyond the normal boundary. Undoubtedly, Humboldt is your number one choice to study the German language and to find a Gymnasium that fits your individual needs.
